Root Pointer is thread safe as shown in my examples. I'll read more
about the data races later, but general race conditions aren't gone with

Each one of them is derived from the other so you can use it as a simple
shared_ptr, or cyclic-safe shared_ptr. The latter is just sizeof(void *)
x 2. Kernel programmers should be smart enough to use a unique type for
iterators. My implementation is just very generic.
